A rebalance of all the units in CVS is currently underway. You can see information on the rebalance and track its status through this page.

Status

The bulk of what we set out to do is done, and should be properly in cvs soon. What's left is to add the new upgrade types and to do some pretty serious playtesting (while I've playtested till my brain failed, the lack of proper weapons on the ships may have distorted my interpretation ... furthermore, only me and petey have actually playtested to any big extent). Note: We are only talking about pilotable ships, see the FAQ for details.
